I have been tracking the employment rate of MPl graduates with a specialisation in social planning, community design, and public policy such as housing programs. Quite a number of high profile community planning positions don't seem to have people with professional planning education at all. I find that a disturbing sight for someone who is considering the profession.
I am wondering if any one here with such a specialisation is employed in a professional planning position. Would any you be kind enough to comment on the career prospects for specialists in community planning in Canada/US at large, and in Ontario in particular? I am interested in public/city planning (Toronto). How difficult is it to get in?
Thanks a lot!
